  • Stryker, L.; Jones, R.; Langmeier, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    For the beef industry to be economically competitive with other meat industries, it is essential that individual producers strive for the most efficient, highest quality, least cost production possible. A sample of 26 ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    A feeding trial utilizing one-hundred and twelve growing-finishing Duroc pigs was conducted to evaluate the effect of buquinolate (0, 30, 60, or 90g/t) in their diets on growth, efficiency, and carcass quality. Pigs fed ...
  • Bailey, E.A.; Preedy, G.W.; Pacheco, L.A.; Jaeger, John R.; Waggoner, Justin W.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    Early weaning can be used by cow-calf producers to reduce stocking rates by 20% to 30% during drought. Ranchers may be reluctant to wean early because of reduced calf weights and reduced revenue compared with weaning ...
  • Harner, Joseph P.; Brouk, Michael J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Efficient utilization of nutrients is a must on modern dairies. Most of the phosphorus arriving at the dairy will either be found in purchased feedstuffs or commercial fertilizer used to raise grain and forage for the ...
  • Bolte, Kati; Dhuyvetter, Kevin C.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
    Buyers and sellers of livestock come together at livestock auction markets to discover prices in a public setting. Livestock markets may differentiate themselves by offering electronic individual animal identification and ...

    Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) are a group of bacteria that cause an estimated 265,000 illnesses, 3,600 hospitalizations, and 30 deaths annually in the United States. STEC are frequently associated with ...
  • Knapp, Alan K.; Bargmann, Naomi; Maragni, Laura A.; McAllister, Christine A.; Bremer, Dale J.; Ham, Jay M.; Owensby, Clenton E. (1999)
    In central U.S. grasslands, plant and ecosystem responses to elevated CO2 are most pronounced when water availability is limited. In a northeast Kansas grassland, responses to elevated CO2 in leaf area, number, development, ...
  • Nichols, David A.; Pollmann, D.S.; Olson, W.G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Records of approximately 11,000 boars and 6,000 gilts enrolled in the KSU on-farm swine test program were summarized. Both boars and gilts reached 220 lbs 5 days sooner in 1980 than 1970. Of the traits evaluated, the largest ...
  • Heidker, J.; Ilg, H.; Bolsen, K.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    ELPWA (a lactobacillus inoculant with antioxidant), molasses, or both combined were evaluated as additives to high moisture sorghum grain ensiled in concrete stave silos. ELPWA treated grain had the greatest temperature ...
  • Blair, R.M.; Coughlin, C.M.; Minton, J. Ernest; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    The primary objective of this study was to determine if embryo survival in gilts and primiparous sows was related to variations in the periovulatory profiles of estradiol- 17β, progesterone, and luteinizing hormone. A ...
  • Carmill, J.A.; Zarkouny, S.E.; Hensley, B.A.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Rates of embryo survival in lactating dairy cows were assessed in three separate studies. Based on pregnancy diagnoses 27 to 29 days after timed inseminations, survival to days 40 to 50 or day 57, depending on the study, ...
  • Feltrin, G.; Alvarado-Gilis, Christian A.; Van Bibber-Krueger, Cadra L.; Klamfoth, D.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014)
    We have investigated the potential for using hydrated lime to form protective matrices with oil-rich feeds, such as flaxseed, to increase the incorporation of omega-3 fatty acids into meat. Dolomitic lime is mixed with ...
  • Newton, E.A.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Minton, J. Ernest; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Eighteen sows were treated as follows: 1) 10 multiparous and four primiparous sows were separated from their litters for 6 hr/day and exposed to a mature boar for 1 hr/day during the last 8 days of lactation, and 2) four ...
  • Pendergraft, J.S.; Arns, M.J.; Raub, R.H.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brazle, F.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Fescue toxicity causes substantial production losses in sheep, cattle, and horses. These losses are attributed to an endophyte, Acremonium coenophialum. However, our results indicate that Quarter horse yearlings can ...
